#ThankALineman

See power from a different perspective

Get to know the people behind the power

They weather storms and put it all on the line to keep our lights on. The more we can tell their stories, the more we'll all start seeing power from an entirely different perspective.

Our lineworkers play a vital role in working safely to keep communities connected across Georgia and providing the energy we all rely on. This Lineman Appreciation Month, we're thanking them and sharing an up-close look at the sacrifice, dedication, and strength that helps bring so many possibilities to life in our state.

How to Thank a Lineworker

Say "Hello!"
Lineworkers are in our neighborhoods and communities every day, and it's the small gestures that really make them feel appreciated.

Be understanding
Lineworkers are here to help, not harm. No matter how it may seem, they're always working in your best interest.

Be cautious and courteous
When you see lineworkers on the job, stay clear for both your and their safety.

Linemen vs Linemen

To celebrate the vital work of our line crews, we invited 60 lineworkers and their families to Mercedez Benz Stadium in Atlanta to compete in a special lineman flag football tournament. The linemen were drafted into 6 teams, with each being coached by a current Atlanta Falcons player.

See some of the highlights from the tournament.

  • "There are some things that you take for granted until it's missing, like power! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. We truly appreciate you and wish you health, wellness and safety. "

    - The Carters

  • "Thank you for always being ready to respond! We know it can be a sacrifice taking you away from your own families at a time of need and we wanted you to know we truly appreciate what you do."

    - The Slades

  • "I know that you sacrifice leaving your own family behind who may also be without power to help get everyone else's power back on. While most people get to stay home and enjoy the day at home from school at work and get to play in the snow with their kids, you all don't. You are very much appreciated!"
